Beauty Box 5 | Unboxing & Review: July 2017

Welcome to the July unboxing of my Beauty Box 5… In August! The theme of this box is "Let's Get Lost" and trust me, they did!


If you've been following my blog or Youtube channel, you'll know, BB5 it's one of my favorite subscription boxes. It's affordable, always more full sizes than samples, good quality products. I mean, it's really good. Or, it was?! 


Ok, let's begin with the basics! BB5 is a monthly, beauty box and it cost $12.00 a month. It always includes 5 products and most of them are full sizes, at least most of the time! There are always hit and misses like every box but so far, it was good. 

However, this month.. Was a huge miss. And I am not talking about the products. Those are actually good. Let's take a look…

-Luseta Beauty, Argan Oil Hair Masque. It retails for $29.00 and it smells delich. It promotes hair growth and protects against future heat damage. I can definitely use some of that! (Sample)
-Nanacoco, Rio II Nail Polish Collection. It retails for $3.95 and the formula on this one is good. It's like a dark coral shade. Really pretty.
-BB5, Cut that Crease, Make Up Brush. We got it as a "Sorry for being late and disappearing". And, it's not good. It sheds and the bristles are not soft.

-Styli-Style, Line & Seal Eye Liner. It retails for $6.50 and it's a pretty bronzy color and it's really smooth.

-Seraphine Botanicals, Quince + Crimson Crayon. It retails for $24.00, can be used on lips or cheek bones. It's super matt and really beautiful. Again, picture doesn't do any justice to it. Make sure to watch my video below for swatches.

-Manna Kadar Cosmetics, Glo Illuminator. It retails for $29.00 and it can be mixed with foundation or used alone. This picture doesn't do any justice to it. (Sample)

Now, I love this service! It's good, affordable and I have had the opportunity to try a lot of new products and learn about brands I didn't even know existed. Sadly, last month BB5 did something a lot of us (subscribers) weren't happy about it. They were very late with the boxes. To be honest, I wasn't even mad at the beginning. I have been a subscriber since 2014 and I know something like this has never happened before. However, they decided to announce the boxes were late on July 29, they were already late and on top of it… They disappear from social media. Like gone, bye, now you see me now you don't. In my opinion that was a very shady move. Not only that, they also delete comments from other subscribers and disable comments on Instagram. Until this date, they have not posted anything on social media. In fact, I was charged for my August box and guess what?! Nothing, and they are late again. I decided to cancel my subscription before they charged me for something else and until they fix the whole thing. 

I would share the link to the subscription box for you to check it out BUT, I don't feel like sharing something I don't even know it's working. Stay tune!!

Don't forget to watch my video below and until next time peeps. God bless!!
